Bad management blamed for lack of new security measures at UN

National News // April 9, 2019

Not enough money is being spent on the safety and security of the international organisations in Geneva – although it is there.

A report from the Swiss Federal Audit Office says bad management is mainly to blame.

There is CHF 11m available to spend on projects to improve security – and so far, only a series of reinforced flower beds have been built to stop vehicles ramming the UN building. They cost half a million.

The Audit Office says a management deadlock is holding up progress - mainly disagreements between Department of the UN and International organizations, the Swiss Mission and the UN Real Estate Foundation.

The Audit Office says the different offices need to clarify responsibilities.
